Benefits of LED lighting

Benefits of LED lighting

When it comes to lighting your business, you should always go for the most energy-efficient option. One of the best ways to do this is to switch from traditional incandescent bulbs to LED. Incandescent bulbs produce light by heating the filament, which means that they use a lot of energy. On the other hand, LEDs are semiconductors that produce light when current flows through them, and therefore only need little power.

Here are some of the benefits of LED lighting for your home or business

Energy efficiency

LEDs can turn 70% of their energy into light thanks to their high lumen output per watt. Compared to other bulbs, a six-watt LED bulb produces the same amount of light as a 40-watt incandescent bulb. You will be able to significantly cut power costs by switching over to LED lighting.

Longevity

LED bulbs have the longest lifespan compared to both fluorescent and incandescent bulbs. You can use them for up to 60,000 hours before needing to replace them. Their longevity is assured to reduce your maintenance costs.

Safety

The heat produced by some of these other bulbs is enough to start a fire. As a matter of fact, the Windsor castle went ablaze in 1992 after a painter left a halogen bulb on nearby heavy curtains. The best thing about LED bulbs is that you never have to worry about the safety of your home or business. They produce little to no warmth and are cool to the touch even after being on for hours.

Higher colour rendering index

Colour rendering index (CRI) is the measurement of a light’s ability to reveal an object’s true colour compared to natural light. Light sources with a higher CRI are desirable in most cases, especially at work and home. LED lights have the greatest CRI compared to all other bulbs on the market.

Flexibility

LEDs are used in different applications because of their small size. You can use a number of lights to create multiple designs such as on logo signs etc.
